Smart watches ASUS ZenWatch supplied in a black cardboard box almost cubical.
Inside the box are the watch, the power supply cable, USB <=> micro-USB, docking station, and a set of documents.
External Look and Feel
ASUS is positioned as a smart ZenWatch watch premium level and therefore design the device given special attention, which is quite obvious: watch case is made entirely of stainless steel, on the perimeter of the device is coated with a paste of color “pink gold”, and protective glass slightly bended .
Rear panel hours, unlike polished faces and front edging made matte (reminds titanium). It is located at the bottom of five-pin connector for charging and connecting to the PC via the docking station and on the right – a small power button. Press the button to have mainly to enable or disable the device, because when put into the hands of the clock, it is difficult to reach.
More on the body of the gadget has no elements, except for the microphone on the left side.
If the design of this device is really stands out, the ergonomics was noticed two small slip. The first – the height of the watch is more than five centimeters, and the bottom panel is completely flat. As a result, the thin wrist gadget will sit uncomfortable, so before buying a smart watch is certainly worth a try on his hand.
The second drawback – the design of the strap fasteners. On the one hand, the mechanism is very useful in terms of putting on and removing the clock: once is enough to tighten the strap to the desired length, then all the work the company will gear the metal fasteners. On the other hand, the mechanism has a large thickness, which is why hours hard work for a computer.
Described drawbacks – fees excellent appearance, and most importantly, everyone must decide for itself.
But watch case is protected by standard IP55, allowing the device to not be afraid of spray and water jets – in ZenWatch can wash their hands without fear of the operation device. However, swimming or take a shower should not be – smart work hours immersed state is not expected, and may suffer from water look leather strap.
ASUS Smart Watch has a display with 1.63-inch AMOLED matrix resolution of 320×320 pixels. Resolution is not very large and, let’s be honest, pixelation image visible to the naked eye, but can not say that it somehow interferes with the device. But AMOLED-display when displaying a “duty” black and white dials consume much less energy than the IPS-matrix, which positively affects the autonomy regime in the included screen constantly.
Viewing angles are maximal, the quality of color reproduction is also no complaints. The screen is easy to read even a day at an average level of illumination. Of course, the maximum level under the bright spring sun would have been more comfortable, but ASUS ZenWatch, unfortunately, there is no light sensor, and constantly change the brightness manually hardly anyone would.
The screen is covered with protective glass Gorilla Glass 3 by Corning, which in turn has an oleophobic coating.
Smart watches ASUS ZenWatch be interesting, but not quite a universal device. Undoubtedly, this gadget will appeal to those who love the original look and feel of luxury goods (so the manufacturer is positioning novelty, despite the fact that it has more than democratic price), as well as unusual technical solutions, which include the construction and heart rate the ability to measure the emotional state of the wearer. On the other hand, a smart watch is difficult to advise those who want to acquire a versatile gadget with utilitarian design, especially if you plan to use it for sport. But in spite of all the above, ZenWatch – worthy smart watches, which we are sure will occupy its own niche.
